In the ultimate expression of luxury watches by Piaget, the Altiplano ultra-thin watch was conceived to offer a backdrop of purity and absolute refinement for its movements. These designer watches feature elegant lines, elevated by emblematic finishes and echoed by the identifying codes of the dial: off-center displays, alternating double and simple indexes and “baton” hands. Born in 1957, these bold yet timeless signatures for Swiss luxury watches discretely attract every gaze. The Altiplano ultra-thin watch takes its name from the eponymous plateau nestled in the heart of the Cordillera Andes, whose purity of open, untouched land is directly echoed in the collection’s elegant watches. Inside are some of the thinnest movements ever realized, as with the 38 mm hand-wound Piaget Altiplano 900P, the thinnest luxury watch of all time.
A new complication, a new double world record for thinness. For the first time, the Altiplano watch integrates a calendar and holds pride of place as the thinnest watch in the world in its category, for both its movement and its case. Embracing the back-to-the-basics philosophy to perfection, its 3.00 mm movement, the thinnest in the world, and its 6.36 mm thick case illustrate that technique and sophistication, however great they may be, can be comfortably housed in a small space. The 40 mm rose gold fashioned case, specifically designed to host the 1205P movement, also houses the date and small seconds. The dial arranged on three levels and the subtle interplay between single and double hour-markers reiterate the codes cherished by Piaget’s ultra-thin, automatic watches. A timelessly pure luxury watch for men, it is destined to become a true classic that will stand the test of time.
